Home broadband tribulations – 46

October 21, 2012 in Challenge

To be able to connect to the Internet at reasonable speeds from one’s own home is still a great problem for many people. For a single person to pay for a personal home connection via e.g. BT or Virgin is not cheap. Many find the service to be unreliable, and configuring the system is beyond many people. Such is the complexity of a broadband WiFi router set-up that it is hard to know, when it goes wrong, just what is at fault; even experienced computer users can be driven up the metaphorical wall.

  1. We’ve had quite a few people coming in to the Our Digital Planet (http://www.ourdigitalplanet.co.uk) Internet Station with problems like this. There is definitely a need for sources of advice. It seems to me, something like the Digital Outreach Trainers Project needs to be extended wider http://www.makingitpersonal.org.uk/course/view.php?id=13
